    2020-21 Meal Prices

    Note: All meals prepared and offered by Chartwells K12 at Edina Public Schools does NOT contain any pork products and are free from peanuts and tree nuts. (Example: Turkey Ham Sandwich is made with poultry, not pork.)

    Food Service Program extended through school year

    The USDA has extended the free student meal program through June 30, 2021. This means all students under age 18 may receive a free breakfast and free lunch at school, if they choose, through EPS Food and Nutrition Services. Student eligibility status is NOT required for the SFSP program so lunch accounts will NOT be charged; all meals are free.

    Any family who wishes may pick up breakfast and lunch meals for their students. Curbside pickup of meals is once a week on Wednesdays, at Door 15 behind EHS.

    Pick Up Location:  Edina High School, Door 15 (behind school)Example of meal options
    When: Wednesdays, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.; 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

    Access the meal pickup menu.

    We are currently operating under the USDA Summer Food Service Program where students will receive the following if they choose.  Students must take all components and are unable to decline anything offered with the meal, including milk.  

    • Breakfast: Whole grain entree, 1/2 cup fruit or 4 oz 100% juice and 1% milk
    • Lunch: Entree (whole grains and meat/meat alternate), fruit and vegetables and skim chocolate milk

    Apply for lunch benefits to qualify for additional opportunities!

    Although qualifying for meal benefits is not necessary to receive free meals, it is still very important to complete the meal benefits application as soon as possible! Qualifying for meal benefits also qualifies students for additional benefits, including: free ACT testing; participation in College Possible program; college scholarships; some government benefits; and discounts for things such as Comcast internet service, and tickets to various museums.

    You should apply if:

    • Your family qualified for meal benefits last year -- a new application MUST BE SUBMITTED EACH YEAR.
    • Your family applied last year but did not meet income guidelines. The guidelines change a little each year and you may now qualify for benefits.
    • Your household income has been affected by unemployment, health crisis, death or other circumstances.
